Dr. Kriner Cash is officially the new superintendent of the Buffalo Public Schools.

He signed his $275,000 contract on Tuesday, and then immediately took action to get our schools back on track.

Dr. Cash addressed a district-wide team of school administrators, division heads and central office personnel during their annual Leadership Meeting that is held before the start of every school year.

During his speech, Dr. Cash pointed to the importance of releasing the potential in every child, and he encouraged teachers and staff to set high goals for themselves and the student achievement. He pointed out that it's important to be caring and to use data as a powerful tool in intervention and guidance.
